I am currently trying to give DaVinci a try for my video editing needs. However, I am running into issues, which seem to be graphics card related.

It crashes like this (from the logs):

[0x7fb0b796c000] | Main                 | INFO  | 2020-04-06 13:25:43,873 | Running DaVinci Resolve v16.2.0.055 (Linux/Clang)

The CPU and Graphics card on this machine are as follows:

More specifically, the graphics card is a Gen 4 Intel 4600.

Does anyone know if it is possible to get DaVinci working on this system? If so, how should I troubleshoot this issue?

Black Magic Design have recently released Resolve version 16.2.1 with "Improved stability on Windows systems with Intel graphics" - which may help, but generally speaking support and performance on Integrated CPU's has always been limited. I can run DR on my Laptop with an Intel HD 520, but only for very basic & slow editing.

You also did not say when it crashes. i.e. At startup / playback / edit, and what media was being processed (if any).

Minimum system requirements for Windows: Windows 10 Update 16 GB of system memory. 32 GB when using Fusion Blackmagic Design Desktop Video version 10.4.1 or later Integrated GPU or discrete GPU with at least 2GB of VRAM GPU which supports OpenCL 1.2 or CUDA 10 NVIDIA/AMD/Intel GPU Driver version

  • Thanks for your answer. I am actually on an Ubuntu 18.04 machine. Yes, it crashes on startup. Apr 23, 2020 at 13:23
